Subject: A timeless classic
The medical doctor, Richard M. Bucke, wrote this book in the year 1900. It has circulated among a small group of mystics and religious seekers ever since. In brief, Dr. Bucke proposes that all the religious leaders of all religions throughout all history began their missions with a common subjective experience that he calls 'Cosmic Consciousness.' He uses ancient texts by these religious leaders to clarify his position, and this occupies most of his book. Many readers say this is a brilliant book. Alan Watts, for example, was an advocate of this book. Dr. Bucke also believes many poets were blessed with this same Cosmic Consciousness, including Walt Whitman, who was a personal friend of Dr. Bucke.
